Light snowfall coats southwestern Connecticut

A light snowfall coated southwestern Connecticut Sunday, causing problems for some drivers, though municipal workers did their best to make it bearable.

After the storm subsided, parts of the area saw an inch of snow on the ground.

Department of Public Works employees in towns and cities across the area were up bright and early to make sure motorists had an easy time driving. Workers in Norwalk started applying rock salt to roads at 5 a.m., before the first snowflake even fell.

While drivers didn't experience whiteout conditions, they did endure slow driving on major roadways. Roads were especially treacherous in Bridgeport, where an officer reported more than 30 accidents. Accidents in Milford and Fairfield were also reported.
